One more chance to order uniforms

        MIDDLETOWN — Students who will attend Vail Middle School this year have one more opportunity to order uniform shirts.

        School and Parent Teacher Organization officials will be at the school 8-9:30 a.m., 12-1:30 p.m., and 4:30-6 p.m. Aug. 8-9 to answer questions about the new, voluntary uniform policy. At that time, June orders can be picked up and new orders placed.

        PTO President Kathy Venturella said she hopes the shirts ordered next week will be ready when school begins.

Official to leave
        WEST CHESTER TWP. — Dick Camp is leaving the Lakota Schools to become business manager for the Sycamore Community Schools.

        For 10 years, Mr. Camp, a former Marine, was director of support services, overseeing construction, food service, custodians and maintenance workers. He will be doing similar work in Sycamore.

        “I'm excited about the new job. It's a new challenge. After 10 years it's time to move on,” Mr. Camp said. “But I leave with mixed emotions. I made a lot of friends here.”

Meal prices go up
        TRENTON — It will cost more to buy a meal or pay student fees in the Edgewood Schools this year. Increases were approved by the school board, along with a 10 percent increase in school fees.

        The new prices for lunch are $1.75, grades kindergarten to 5; $2 grades 6-12; $2.75 for super lunch, grades 6-12; $2.75, adult lunch. Breakfast will cost $1 and the cost for milk will increase from 35 cents to 50 cents.

        School fees for kindergarten were set at $27.50 per child. At the elementary schools, this year's cost will be $44. In the middle school, fees were set at $55. Fees vary in grades 9-12, depending on courses selected.

District adds buses
        MADISON TWP. — Two new buses will be added to the fleet of the Madison Schools.

        The board of education last week agreed to seek bids for the buses. Bids are due Monday. The district's cost for one of the buses, which will be used for a private school route, will be reimbursed through the Ohio Department of Education, said Superintendent William Caudill. The buses are estimated to cost $53,000-$54,000 each. —Sue Kiesewetter
